The Club hosted a group of highly qualified medical professionals to inform viewers of what to do should you be unfortunate enough to have a medical emergency aboard your vessel.
The evening covered how to treat injuries such as broken bones, ribs, head injuries and amputations as well as injections, drug administration and managing the injured person for the many hours or even longer that they will be on board and relying on you to care for them.
Thank you to the many presenters for attending on the night and sharing their knowledge.
Organised by the Cruising sub-committee.
